not talking about it

The main thing i'm working on at the moment is something i really don't feel like talking about. Probably because it's driving me a little nuts. But it's under control. I think.
So instead here's a couple of other things.

Above is a new drawing. Ball point pen, pantone letraset markers and white ink.

This is a drawing installation i'm working on. I plan to make it pretty big. It's in early stages, and is 'installed' rather roughly on the wall of my studio. There are many possibilities for different arrangements of the parts. And there will be many more parts before i'm finished with it.
I started it when at Bundanon, slowly it is growing.

It is larger than the photos show, but i have no decent photo of the whole thing. Which reminds me, i'm getting a new lens soon. I actually got a new camera the other day, just a 'point and shoot' digital. Unfortunately a DSLR is not that great to carry around. At least when you're like me and are always carrying a heap of stuff anyway. It is great for documenting artwork, though.

My new camera fits inside a soapbox, with which i have made a case for it (i added some padding etc). Unfortunately the memory is yet to arrive, i can only take about 5 pictures with the supplied SD card. Hopefully Tuesday.

oh Jade, you are just wonderful... seriously. I love the idea of the cutouts ... the concept reminds me a bit of Sally Smart(I couldn't remember her last name, but I googled cutout sally priate ... and it was the first on the list, I love google!), but the this piece is all you, especially the lovely linework.

Thankyou very much Jude and Claire. Claire I LOVE Sally Smart! I've even had some work in an exhibition with her (and other artists, at wollongong city gallery), where kids had to write stories inspired by the artworks. The best story for each artwork won a prize. The story written for my work was the best story of all!

I love google, too.
